Glass snake as it’s Chinese New Year. This is the year of the snake. Today became a glass snake making day. (Let me see - how many legs does a snake have?) :) So guess what’s in the kiln?... a glass goat for America and glass snakes. What a mixture. Here’s a picture of a glass snake I made earlier:
The green in this glass snake is created using chrome, the purple on the tongue is a mixture of gold and cobalt. The colors are metal powders which are added after the snake was made clear and then re-fired in the kiln.
